3.0 out of 5 stars Great Trucking Game with Limitations January 30, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
There are probably two types of people out there interested in this game: people who've played one of the 18 Wheels series and people who haven't.

If you have played on of these games, skip down a bit.

If you haven't, depending on what sort of simulations you're in to, this game may give you hours of enjoyment or boredom.

The basic tack of the game is, as you'd expect, you get some money, an entry-level rig and a lack of any reputation. Your goal is to grab loads to haul and drive them across the US and to some extent Canada and Mexico. As you haul loads, you'll make more money for upgrades for your rig (or a whole new rig) and you'll gain a reputation. Your success and your reputation lead to your ability to hire on other drivers and expand your trucking empire.

To counteract your success, you'll have to deal with long (and in some cases boring) hauls, police (checking speed, general driving rules, etc), and to some extent, the competition of your fellow truckers. There's also traffic on the roads including other trucks. There used to be a bug in older versions that made traffic hazardous (cars would just randomly hit the brakes like they were trying to cause an accident) but that's gone and traffic will even yield to your turn signal. But, to compensate for this, the devs decided to throw in something else to cause you grief. If you so much as stop one inch beyond the line at a stop light, you'll be flagged as having run a red light (a fine worth up to $9000 in the game!).

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New December 18, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Valusoft/SCS has created a great series in 18 Wheels of Steel. They've constistantly kept the price [...]) and have made great products. The 18WoS franchise has been a great driving simulator and buisness sim as well as being pretty stable (not counting Convoy).
Unfortunately it seems like the 18WoS series is beginning to get stale and repetitive. The cities need to be lively! Going into cities which seem so familiar and seeing no one walking or people coming out of shops and office buildings just doesn't cut it anymore. The traffic signals even look the same. Turning lanes would be a nice addition because a accident is just waiting to happen, plus when you wait for a clear path making a left turn, you are constantly being honked at. Please, no more cardboard buildings.

In the latest release by Valusoft/SCS American Long Haul has the same graphics as Haulin as well as the same premise. You start off with a truck and haul different types of cargo through the United States, Canada and now Mexico (only a few cities). Mexico was added but it was previously in 18WoS: Pedal to the Medal only. The only thing different in 18WoS: ALH is that you can bid on cargo and their are some shortcuts. There are a few large truckstops but to me it's not a truckstop if you can't get out of your truck, fill up the tank, go to the bathroom, talk to other drivers, or relax in the resturant. You can also be your own boss and hire other drivers just like in Haulin. I think the minor additions to American Long Haul could of very well been a patch for Haulin.

When I saw this on the SCS website, I was looking forward to a new chapter in the 18WoS series however when I played the demo, it's exactly like Haulin. I wasn't expecting American Long Haul to be almost the same as Haulin.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK August 27, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is nothing more than an okay game, in my opinion. It is a decent game, but is missing some features. The graphics are very plain. They need liveliness. In newer games, there is more detail. That is exactly what this needs. There should be more trees, and more realistic grass and desert sand. I would like for there to be more cactus plants in the desert as well, as in real life. Or, at least more realistic sand, and flatter land. I really like the desert in 18 WOS Extreme Trucker, a newer game. They are very detailed, and look nothing like the old ones. I think that the vehicles in this game, including the AI vehicles, need a lot of improvement in apperance. The surfaces and textures on trucks in some of the old games are actually better! But there is a good selection of trucks included though. There are some invisible walls on the ramps to the gas stations, that should be removed because they can damage a person's truck. It is not right that you can be driving very well and all of a sudden crash into something you can't even see. Read more ›
